Entertainment – Sports and Nightlife
Downtown San Antonio has a bustling bar and entertainment scene along the beautiful San Antonio Riverwalk. Enjoy restaurants, bars, and hotels as you stroll along the serene San Antonio River. Nearby, visit the world famous Alamo, a must-see for any resident or visitor of San Antonio.
The Alamo, famed battle site and historical monument. San Antonio is often called the Alamo City.
If you’re looking for a bit more excitement, Six Flags Fiesta Texas is open year-round, as is SeaWorld San Antonio! San Antonio is also, of course, the home of the 5-time NBA Champion Spurs, and San Antonio bleeds silver and black. Catching a home game at the AT&T Center is a treat – make a point to check one out if you get a chance! For baseball fans, the San Antonio Missions, our local minor-league team, plays at Nelson W. Wolff Municipal Stadium.
Culture – Food and History
San Antonio brings a uniquely Texan mix of big-city life and small-town values. And as people keep flooding to the city, the food world of San Antonio continues to blossom. Of course, Tex-Mex reigns supreme, and you’ll lose track well before you try every taco in town. You can’t count out the barbecue, either – the Smoke Shack delivers delicious Texas barbecue in the heart of Alamo Heights.
Residents of San Antonio head down to First Fridays in the South town Arts District to browse the local galleries and artists displaying their work, and return for Second Saturdays just a week later, all year long. Every April, residents spend a weekend of parades and celebrations for the San Antonio Fiesta. The Fiesta started in 1891 to honor the fallen heroes of the Battles of The Alamo and San Jacinto, and has grown to become a celebration of everything San Antonio!
Growth – Housing and Jobs
San Antonio is rooted in tradition, but also growing rapidly into the future. Home sales are up nearly 9% year-over-year, but don’t think that means living in the city is out of reach. The average home price was $204,300 in 2016, a growth rate of 6%, and new houses are being built over 8% more than in 2016. Whether you’re interested in a home with some history, or one built to your specifications, there’s a place for you in San Antonio.
Once you get here, you’ll find a robust and growing job market. Three industries are growing rapidly around town – Advanced Manufacturing, Bioscience/Healthcare, and Information Technology/Information Security. In 2015 alone, these industries contributed to a growth of over $1.1 billion in economic expansion and some 8,000 jobs. Companies like Rackspace, NuStar Energy, and USAA are major drivers of growth and employment in the city.
